What I really don't understand is why they don't claim success, and keep going. PC gaming has had steady growth since the PCGA started in 2008. Yes much of that has come from free to play, but other sectors of PC gaming have grown as well.

It's not a problem. The PC platform is anti central-planning and for good reason: central planning too often doesn't work. The very continued existence of the ~32 year old platform is testament to more or less free market forces.

The PC gaming market is a shining example of market capitalism at work and producing a wide variety of superior products. We've never had it so good.

I'd just like to say I spent the weekend in Destiny and it was fantastic. The next two days will be so lonely...


Really? You remember my posts about how derivative it seemed and how boring the combat looked (I did admire the envs tho). What did you find so compelling?

Get ready to wait a long time Chattanooga, or better yet go after your state government that's decided its unfair to make Comcast and AT&T compete...ever...against anyone.

Yes. When corporations partner with government is called corporatism or cronyism. It's a flavor of socialism. It's not capitalism!

Capitalism:
an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.
Corporatism:
the control of a state or organization by large interest groups.

In the case of Chattanooga, what we have is both capitalism (since Comcast is controlling the internet industry for profit) and corporatism (since Comcast is controlling the government to maintain their monopoly). Unregulated monopolies are still capitalism, just not the kind that brings benefits to anyone other than the monopoly. May as well have the state running things at that point.

Watching this train wreck unfold is more fun than the game could ever possibly be.

Meh, I'm not enjoying it that much. I really want another STALKER game, not this BS. Also, I hate reality TV, and this is the gaming version of that. It's like 1bad sez: "It's just a bunch of mystic bovine scatology to me."

News Comments > Yager: No Spec Ops: The Line Sequel
27. Re: Yager: No Spec Ops: The Line Sequel Jul 21, 2014, 15:24 jdreyer
 
Art director Mathias Wiese also notes that five years of looking at war images can be rough on the developers, which would have left them reluctant to make a sequel even if Spec Ops had been a huge hit.

I've been interested in this game for a long time because it sounds like they'd taken a truly unique approach. However, I'd also put it off knowing that unique approach would not be fun in the traditional sense. I just picked it up in the humble bundle, so now when I'm in the mood I can jump right in. Just not sure when that mood will strike...

"They are now claiming that our success on Kickstarter is fabricated, whilst conveniently failing to mention that people are using multiple accounts to make a bunch of 1 dollar pledges, and every time a new backer comes along, they remove 1 or 2 pledges, so that it looks like our sum is increasing without any new backers."

Wow. Just, wow.

The truth is that things are getting better at the same time they are getting worse. On the one hand crime is low, longevity is high, technology has increased quality of life. On the other hand global warming will be catastrophic, American democracy is completely compromised, wealth inequality is increasing, population growth is outstripping food production, water shortages are real, many critical resources are at or past peak. On balance I agree with Cutter. The positives aren't enough to overcome the negatives. Most of our problems are of our own making and solvable but I don't see humanity doing the hard work required. We're going to keep on partying until the house burns down around us. Only will humanity collectively realize they've got no place to eat or sleep.

it sorta irks me when people just use MEMES as parlance for something purely on a second-hand basis.. so you get people writing shit like "wah-lah" on comment threads because theyve heard it before but have no fucking clue what the actual word is, just how it sounds

or how people say "they drank the koolaid" when describing people who swallow something hook line and sinker... without any clue of how that phrase actually refers to a mass suicide event

pretty much everyone does it.. its even more iritating when they try to get on a high horse about how their incomplete and fragmentary "understanding" of some turn of phrase or whatever is actually the one and only truth
I don't know that it's necessary to know the origin of a phrase in order to be able to use it. As long as you can use it correctly it should be fine.

in one context, saying something is a "meme" is the modern way of saying something is "trendy"

in another context, it refers specifically to one-liners and gif images, or combinations of them

but the idea of a "meme" originally refers to quite a bit more than "ORLY?" pics and hamburger cats etc

Yes but even in its original meaning can you use it to refer to a product that everyone buys? All the kids around here have and play with kendamas. I would say kendamas are a fad or a trend but not a meme.

What the hell is the problem with DayZ? It's a goddamn positive development in gaming. It requires patience, it's not from a AAA studio, it has a great deal of customization available, and it's hard. This is what PC gaming is supposed to have in spades.
I think the problem is that it's not close to being finished and the completion date isn't even on the horizon.

DayZ is the current meme, like Minecraft was. It's the in thing to buy atm.

"That word, I do not think it means what you think it means."

I think the word you're looking for is "fad."

Just a few months ago he posted pics of himself at QC from the late 90s. He's the evil looking one with the beard.
